can you READ these Rxs?

FEBRUARY 01, 2008

Angeles Dorame, CPhT, of Scottsdale Professional Pharmacy Ltd in Scottsdale, Arizona, had a difficult time trying to determine what medication was being ordered for the patient. After several attempts at trying to translate this illegible handwriting, Dorame called the prescribing physician?s office for clarification. Do you know what drug the physician ordered?



Registered Pharmacist Amy Malmen, of The Medicine Shoppe in Mattoon, Illinois, had a pretty good idea what drug the patient was prescribed. Still, she called the physician?s office for confirmation. The physician?s nurse told her she had the correct drug. Can you figure out this script?
